Hi folks,

I just got a SmartRG SR515ac and am configuring it to access my Synology NAS so it works as it was previously. Normally "" in a browser forwards to the NAS login page (, with various other ports doing other tasks like media access.

What's odd about the SmartRG is that it uses a kooky IP-address-based login format, whereby leads to: ... 90666836A9
403 forbidden,
You don't have permission to access /prime-home/control-panel/login on this server.
Apache/2.2.29 (Amazon) Server at Port 443

But leads to the router login page. The same is true if I use the DDNS in place of the IP: goes to the smartrg 403, goes to the router login.

If I go to more specific links e.g. via links previously saved in sync software and apps, like it returns "unable to connect". The NAS username & password combo are unchanged.

I had one of these routers with sonic a couple of years ago and am pretty sure I configured it successfully, I'm just not sure what I'm missing. I'm pretty sure I've setup the port forwarding properly in NAT port triggering:

This person: solved it by turning off CalDAV but I don't think that's the same. This person: had issues with port 5000, Synology's main login port, but that was a different router and wasn't the same issue with SmartRGs weird renaming thing.

Any ideas welcome.

Advanced setup, LAN, standard mode instead of blocking mode? Make the NAS a static IP lease?
Advanced setup, NAT, should I be using virtual servers instead of port forwards?
Management, Access Control, Services, should I enable anything different to the defaults?

Thanks in advance!

Were you able to resolve this? It is not reassuring that the rg515ac is not working with a NAS.
